I want to thank everyone for coming out to Monday night's screening of CA. It meant a lot to me. Damian and I both had a blast. Let's do it again one of these days! (A special thanks to Joe Pacheco and Danielle DiGiacomo for making it happen, as well as Barbes.)

Yesterday was a pretty eventful one press-wise in the life of Michael Tully. Two more publicity mountains were climbed, as I saw my name on two publications that I frequent on a multi-daily basis. Pretty cool, I must confess:

Not to mention Scott Macaulay's link to the interview Sujewa Ekanayake was kind enough to run with me before the screening on Monday:

But even better than seeing yourself mentioned on websites that you frequent constantly is seeing a childhood friend get up on stage and absolutely DESTROY shit. Which is what happened last night at the Knitting Factory, where best buddy Ben Crum and Great Lakes rocked the FUCK out of downtown NYC. Their new record is being released next Tuesday, and I order you to buy that shit to make your autumn complete. For now, satiate yourself with some choice tracks:

I'm about to pack up and leave town for a week-and-a-half--Maryland, Nashville, Athens, Maryland--before I return and the NYFF press screenings begin. So long, suckas...

    Being that you're working on the Silver Jews doc, I was wondering if you've had a chance yet to catch Liz Nord's doc "Jericho's Echo: Punk Rock in the Holy Land." www.jerichosecho.com

    Saw the youtube clip/Silver Jews video w/ couple in market Mike, very interesting, I like it, nice visuals to zone out to - maybe fun to watch on a huge screen.

    If the copyright owners are cool w/ it, maybe I can screen that video before the next DNO screening (10/5 Kensington)? Let me know, if cool, bring me that video on DVD when u come to MD please.

    Thanks!
